Bread makers were a staple in my house growing up — and these 7 machines are must-haves

I grew up making bread every Sunday for dinner, so I know a thing or two about bread makers. Here are my 7 top picks (and most are on sale!)

Don't call it a comeback – bread makers have been here. While this old-fashioned machine is making a huge resurgence, I first-hand can attest to its longevity. Dating back to my childhood years, I remember dedicating hours on end to our family's go-to bread machine, assisting my dad with our weekly Sunday dinner. 

From french-inspired loaves to whole grain individual rolls, the options were as endless as the customizable features on the bread maker itself! To the point, when I rented my first grown-up apartment, a bread maker was the first investment piece I made. After all, how couldn't it be? This timeless tradition is something I loved as a child, and as I grow older, I too hope to pass it down to my future children one day. 

But what if that 'someday' for me is 'today' for shoppers? Well, in that case, I'm here to help everyone out. 

There are dozens (and I mean dozens) of bread makers on the market, and separating the good from the bad is no easy vice. Over the years, the best bread makers have evolved. 

Nowadays, shoppers are left to mull over so many features and functions, from size to capacity and even bread style too. (Back then, our bread machine had one universal setting, and it was our job to divide the pieces up for smaller portions or bulk it up for larger ones). 

Now, shoppers can choose from machines that include everything from gluten-free to whole grain textures, and some that offer up to 14 different styles of bread. And if you're starting to feel a little overwhelmed? Not an issue: we're here to help.
